There were some interesting observations about the way we should appreciate existence on a moment to moment basis, but it all felt more like a message with a story than a story with a message.
I'll be reading Sartre's non-fiction if I pick up his writing again, as at least that way I'll know exactly what I'm in for. View 1 comment. This book could've been pages shorter ;. This was a very difficult read for me to get through.
I decided to only go at it in very short sections at a time or else my eyes would just glaze over. I did not have a good grasp of "existentialism" going in, and having read this, I have only a very basic understanding. I highlighted a few passages for further review, but as of right now, I just have a great feeling of relief that it is over, and really who really cares what I think about this book? View 2 comments. The story of Antoine Roquentin and his search for meaning, Nausea is a key text for twentieth century existentialism, and a pain in the arse for me.
The existentialists were a set of spoilt, whining sods who needed to get proper jobs, but instead dressed in black, struck poses, chain-smoked, drank too much and worried about being and nothingness, mainly in Paris.

I'd lose the first pages of this book as they don't have much information. Dry reading, I guess. I had about 10 paragraphs altogether that I liked. The other times I was just annoyed of Monsieur Antoine thinking that he's the only one with Nausea, thinking of himself as something special.. We've all read these books. Why did I carry on reading? I'll be honest - out of spite. I wanted to see if the story concludes in anything..
The final pages gave me a sort of "Heureka I'd lose the first pages of this book as they don't have much information. The final pages gave me a sort of "Heureka! That's what I was looking for in this book" thought. Maybe, just maybe, it isn't the fact that Sartre is super intelligent and thus "Nausea" also, but it's just overhyped?

Given multitude of writers and philosophers labelled under its banner, Existentialism may be best understood as "what it is Not". Carruth informed the readers: Existentialism is a recoil from rationalism. Kierkegaard understood that this apotheosis of the human mind did not fully account for human experience.
The existentialist knows that the self is not submerged Statistical analogies: Existentialism confronts the Nothingness when examining within himself. Maybe some modification of this quotation should be made for Christian Existentialist such as Kierkegaard and Paul Tillich.
Different philosophers find different way out of this Nothingness. The avowedly Christian Kierkegaard on the one end, while the equally avowedly anti-theistic Nietzsche on another. What is Sartre's way out?
However, this reader is not interested in Sartre enough to find out. I did not read Nausea, hence the main body of the book retain under "fail to read" shelf. It was a shock to come across the well known quote "I think therfore I am" in this novel - or full length essay in philosophy as it is described on the back. It is a novel though - about a bloke in a French town who is writing a book and suffering an emotional breakdown. His life is dreary, his thoughts bizzare, and pages and pages of this book are stream of conciousness thoughts.
There was always something that kept me reading, though I don't think I actually thought I would get right to the en It was a shock to come across the well known quote "I think therfore I am" in this novel - or full length essay in philosophy as it is described on the back. This novel has left me pondering existentialism which, in exam period, is not the best thing to do!
Although the philosophical ideas behind the novel intrigued me into reading it - I think the plot and general presentation of the themes were a bit of a let down. More was evident about the protagonist's wasted time and general boredom than the battle with freedom.
Existentialism appeals to me. I don't know if thats good or bad but it does. Sooo i thought this was perfect for me as Sartre is a huge figure and this is his must know book.
I was wrong. The first half is so boring and is more of a history lesson then existentialism. It does pick up in the second half but not nearly enough to save the book. The one irreducible fact that I got from this was that this book exists. I like Jean-Paul but couldn't get into this one. First of all, I would not recommend this novel, for I did not find either the plot, the characters, or the themes interesting.
No character is sympathetic. At times, there is some interest, but it is only cursory. Overall, the novel is boring. Now, to be fair, Roquentin could be going mad, for his descriptions are quite hallucin First of all, I would not recommend this novel, for I did not find either the plot, the characters, or the themes interesting.
Now, to be fair, Roquentin could be going mad, for his descriptions are quite hallucinatory and strange. Now while that might sound interesting, the presentation of his madness is not. He is anti-social and the only people he is drawn to in this novel seem just as socially isolated and strange as he is.
The meeting with his girlfriend Anny whom he has not seen in four years strange relationship is only one of accusation and dislike of the other, and I wonder why these two ever had a relationship to begin with.
Anny certainly does not like him, and all Roquentin really notices about her is her physicality, in which she has gained weight. Anny is as strange and unlikeable as Roquentin is.
These interactions with these two characters make up only a small part of the novel. However, the secondary and tertiary walk-ons characters do not perceive him as mad, which seems strange. For the most part, this self-involved man only thinks of how he exists and how he loathes his existence Nausea. He continually criticizes others for not recognizing they exist that they should find themselves revolting.
I read this novel forty years ago and found it boring. I thought the passage of time might change my outlook, but it did not.
Forty years ago I thought I was missing something; now I know I did not. Not what I expected, I thought the idea of existentialism will be more explored, but the author loses around pages of useless description of the people around him insead of the exploring the psyche of the character.
The writing is quite flat, and basic, the idea of a diary was interesting in the first pages, with the fact that some words are missing, but then the narrative completely forget this aspect.

Sartre was also noted for his long relationship with the author and social theorist, Simone de Beauvoir. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature but refused the honour. Being is in-itself. Being is what it is. If I have gained anything by damning myself, it is that I no longer have anything to fear.
All which I abandon, all which I give, I enjoy in a higher manner through the fact that I give it away. To give is to enjoy possessively the object which one gives. God is the solitude of man. If I satiate my desires, I sin but I deliver myself from them; if I refuse to satisfy them, they infect the whole soul.
Our sons will be if we shed enough blood to give them the right to be. But in the concentration camp, I learned to believe in men. You pull the trigger and after that you do not understand anything that happens. I exist because I think I cannot keep from thinking. And yet, life is there, finished: the line is drawn, and it must all be added up. You are nothing other than you life.
One lives one's death, one dies one's life. You can demonstrate that you are right and that others are wrong. The first are the true poor, the others are rich people out of luck. It is total Justice is a human issue, and I do not need a god to teach it to me. Who knows a man's resources?
That is how one becomes an honest citizen. When Sartre was 15 months old, his father died of a fever. Anne-Marie moved back to her parents' house in Meudon, where Sartre was raised with help from her father, a professor of German, who taught Sartre mathematics and introduced him to classical literature at a very early age. At twelve his mother remarried and the family moved to La Rochelle, where he was frequently bullied.
As a teenager in the s, Sartre became attracted to philosophy upon reading Henri Bergson's Essay on the Immediate Data of Consciousness. Sartre was influenced by many aspects of Western philosophy, absorbing ideas from Kant, Hegel, Kierkegaard, Husserl and Heidegger, among others. The two became inseparable and lifelong companions, initiating a romantic relationship, though they were not monogamous.
Sartre served as a conscript in the French Army from to and he later argued in that each French person was responsible for the collective crimes during the Algerian War of Independence. Together, Sartre and de Beauvoir challenged the cultural and social assumptions and expectations of their upbringings, which they considered bourgeois, in both lifestyle and thought.
Sartre's introduction to his philosophy is his work Existentialism is a Humanism , originally presented as a lecture. It was during this period of confinement that Sartre read Heidegger's Sein und Zeit Being and Time , later to become a major influence on his own essay on phenomenological ontology.
Because of poor health he claimed that his poor eyesight and exotropia affected his balance Sartre was released in April However, both Gide and Malraux were undecided, and this may have been the cause of Sartre's disappointment and discouragement.
He then wrote Being and Nothingness, The Flies, and No Exit, none of which was censored by the Germans, and also contributed to both legal and illegal literary magazines. In the book he tries to explain the etiology of "hate" by analyzing so-called antisemitic hate. Sartre was a very active contributor to Combat, a quasi-communist newspaper created during the clandestine period by Albert Camus, a philosopher and author who held similar beliefs.
Sartre and Beauvoir remained friends with Camus until he turned away from communism, a schism that eventually divided them in , after the publication of Camus' The Rebel.
Later, while Sartre was labeled by some authors as a resistant, the French philosopher and resistant Vladimir Jankelevitch criticized Sartre's lack of political commitment during the German occupation, and interpreted his further struggles for liberty as an attempt to redeem himself. According to Camus, Sartre was a writer who resisted, not a resistor who wrote.
After the war ended Sartre established Les Temps Modernes Modern Times , a quarterly literary and political review, and started writing full-time as well as continuing his political activism. Politics The first period of Sartre's career, defined in large part by Being and Nothingness , gave way to a second period as a politically engaged activist and intellectual.
His work Les Mains Sales Dirty Hands in particular explored the problem of being both an intellectual at the same time as becoming "engaged" politically.
He embraced communism, had an affair with a KGB agent, and defended existentialism, though never officially joining the Communist Party, and took a prominent role in the struggle against French rule in Algeria. He became perhaps the most eminent supporter of the FLN in the Algerian War and was one of the signatories of the Manifeste des He opposed the Vietnam War and, along with Bertrand Russell and others, organized a tribunal intended to expose U. As a fellow-traveller, Sartre spent much of the rest of his life attempting to reconcile his existentialist ideas about free will with communist principles, which taught that socio-economic forces beyond our immediate, individual control play a critical role in shaping our lives.
His major defining work of this period, the Critique de la raison dialectique Critique of Dialectical Reason appeared in a second volume appeared posthumously. In Critique, Sartre set out to give Marxism a more vigorous intellectual defense than it had received up until then; he ended by concluding that Marx's notion of "class" as an objective entity was fallacious. Sartre's emphasis on the humanist values in the early works of Marx led to a dispute with the leading Communist intellectual in France in the s, Louis Althusser, who claimed that the ideas of the young Marx were decisively superseded by the "scientific" system of the later Marx.
After Guevara's death, Sartre would declare him to be "not only an intellectual but also the most complete human being of our age" and the "era's most perfect man.
During a collective hunger strike in , Sartre visited Red Army Faction leader Andreas Baader in Stammheim Prison and criticized the harsh conditions of imprisonment. Late life and death In , Sartre renounced literature in a witty and sardonic account of the first ten years of his life, Les mots Words.
Literature, Sartre concluded, functioned ultimately as a bourgeois substitute for real commitment in the world. The prize was announced on 22 October ; on 14 October, Sartre had written a letter to the Nobel Institute, asking to be removed from the list of nominees, and that he would not accept the prize if awarded, but the letter went unread; on 23 October, Le Figaro published a statement by Sartre explaining his refusal.
He said he did not wish to be "transformed" by such an award, and did not want to take sides in an East vs. West cultural struggle by accepting an award from a prominent Western cultural institution. Though his name was then a household word as was "existentialism" during the tumultuous s , Sartre remained a simple man with few possessions, actively committed to causes until the end of his life, such as the student revolution strikes in Paris during the summer of during which he was arrested for civil disobedience.
President Charles de Gaulle intervened and pardoned him, commenting that "you don't arrest Voltaire. Then my essay on Genet, Saint Genet If these are remembered, that would be quite an achievement, and I don't ask for more.

Sartre became almost completely blind in He died 15 April in Paris from edema of the lung. His funeral was well attended, with estimates of the number of mourners along the two hour march ranging from 15, to over 50, Sartre refers to any direct consciousness of the thing-in-itself as a "pre-reflective consciousness.
The reflective consciousness in all its forms, scientific, artistic or otherwise can only limit the thing-in-itself by virtue of its attempt to understand or describe it. It follows, therefore, that any attempt at self-knowledge self-consciousness - a reflective consciousness of an overflowing infinite is a construct that fails no matter how often it is attempted.
Consciousness is consciousness of itself insofar as it is consciousness of a transcendent object. The same holds true about knowledge of the "Other".
